The Cole­man Sis­ters, Kit & Casey, (AKA: Kit Wertz and Casey Schwartz of Flower Duet) will be your Liv­ing Art Camp Guides this sum­mer in an exclu­sive 1‑week only kid-friend­ly excur­sion into the life of a work­ing flo­ral design­er!

This camp fits right into many S.T.E.A.M cur­ricu­lums, too! As small busi­ness own­ers and design­ers of flow­ers for lux­u­ry clients like Chanel, BMW, and Lexus, we use sci­ence to keep our flow­ers fresh and last a long time in the vase. We need tech­nol­o­gy to run our busi­ness and work as our own IT experts with our mar­ket­ing web­site and account­ing pro­grams. We engi­neer new struc­tures for clients every week with saws, drills, and mus­cle.  Mak­ing pret­ty art with flow­ers at a prof­it is not pos­si­ble with­out strong math skills. We use math every day when plac­ing orders for fresh flow­ers and plants and mak­ing sure we have enough sup­plies to see us through each clien­t’s order. The skills of S.T.E.A.M. are essen­tial for us and we’ll pass on those skills to your kids dur­ing our Liv­ing Art Camp!

About Kit & Casey

Kit & Casey are entre­pre­neur­ial sis­ters and moms with kids in the local pub­lic schools of the South Bay of Los Ange­les. We start­ed our busi­ness 20 years ago out of our homes and have occu­pied a 4,500 square-foot ware­house and stu­dio space in Tor­rance for the last decade. We have appeared on nation­al tele­vi­sion shows, been fea­tured in the major news­pa­pers includ­ing the Los Ange­les Times, Wash­ing­ton Post and The New York Times for our flo­ral design work and are sought after pub­lic speak­ers in the flo­ral and wed­ding indus­try. We have been teach­ing flo­ral design class­es since we found­ed our busi­ness and are the “Art of Flo­ral Design” con­tract­ed instruc­tors for The Hunt­ing­ton Library, Art Col­lec­tions and Botan­i­cal Gar­den edu­ca­tion pro­gram for the last 11 years. We have taught thou­sands of adults and hun­dreds of chil­dren in the art of flo­ral design.
